Checked your RAM chips? Remove them and boot up and see if it will beep. If you have another DVD drive, swap it and try again. The board battery rarely goes, and only change it when it is not keeping the date/time etc, it won't help in outputting video.
There should be an on board speaker remove new h/drive boot should post ok and give no boot device error make sure new drive is set for master on jumpers select auto detect h/drive in cmos if detects save reboot should work ok good luck!
A little clarification - I assume you actually mean you were installing Windows 7 on your computer?
If you have a valid Windows 7 CD/DVD, put it in the drive of the computer, restart and enter the BIOS setup screen (you will see instructions on the screen as the computer boots up, might say press "esc" or "delete" key to enter BIOS or something similiar.)
MAKE SURE that the PC can boot from the DVD drive; this is normally an option in the BIOS marked "boot order"; make sure the CD/DVD drive is at the top.
Restart and the installation should start again.
Hi, I would check your power supply with a meter to see if that's the problem. If it checks out ok then it's probably the mobo. In rare instances when a power supply goes it takes the mobo with it. Best of luck...Hank
have you check BIOS settings....when turning on press DEL key to go to your BIOS settings...please disabled your other boot up except your hardisk or cdrom.....in your boot up sequence choose your hardisk....itf still keep f\lashing check your hardisk if its detected.
Try removing all cards with the exception of the video. Remove all memory leaving (1) to boot from. Disconnect power and reset the processor. If you have a boot disk or copy of XP on disk, try to boot from the CD or DVD. If the unit boots at all the problem may be the HD. If not try downloading the BIOS update for your chipset. Remove all extra drive, like secondary CD or DVD drives, Floppy or Zip drives. You may have burnt the processor but I don’t think so. Power supply is OK or you would not power up. Their are 3 or 4 supply voltages from supply, +- 12 volts, +- 5 volts and +-3.3 volts. You may have a secondary 12 volt 4-pin plug but that is for on board video. Try a boot disk and flash your BIOS, if you can. Hope this helps.
The EPA logo and the Fullscreen logo all are stored in the bios. That is the update you download from the manufacturer's website contains both the logos in it. So if you mod the bios update and then apply the patch the next time when you boot your computer you will see the new logo.
***BEWARE A BAD FLASH CAN RENDER YOUR MOTHERBOARD USELESS****
The mods are in two sections. If you only want one or the other, just skip to that section.
1. Make Sure the motherboard uses the Award Bios.
2. Either Download the new Bios from the Manufacturer website or get it from the system Bios directly by backing it up. For backing up and updating bios, I use WinFlash 1.51 (there might be a newer version, I just stick with what works!).
3. Now we have the bios file on disk. Now make a new bitmap image with any of your favorite imaging software. Make sure that the final bitmap image you have created is 640*480 and 256 colors.
4. Now use the CBROM Utility to change the boot logo in the bios file. This is done by using Command Prompt
c:\bios>CBROM215 bios.bin /logo logo.bmp
5. Now to check whether the bios file was updated correctly. Run the Award bios editor. (make sure the dlls in the plugin directory are moved to the folder with awbedit.exe)
6. Load the bios.bin in the Award bios editor and check in the left hand list for Fullscreen Logo and that it does show your logo. If okay your bios is now ready to be flashed.
7. Now use Winflash utility, load the bios.bin and click on update .
8. Reboot the computer and the bios logo is changed.
Procedure for the EPA logo is just same except the few things.
Image size is : 138*84 16 Colors and 72 pixels/inch
Command for adding to bios file is : c:\bios>CBROM215 bios.bin /epa epalogo.bmp
When you check for the EPA logo in the Award Bios Editor, the colors will not be same as those that you choose but when you flash the bios and reboot, it will show the original colors.
Never try to flash bios without a uninterruptible power supply (UPS). Close all the programs before flashing from Windows. ALWAYS wait for flash program to notify you for reboot, DO NOT EVER EVER reboot when you think it is ready or taking too long. Mucking up the flash CAN MAKE YOUR MOTHERBOARD GARBAGE!!! You have been warned!! I hope that this helps, Ken
Chances are since the system CRC1'd it has a
very old BIOS revision. From version 1.10 on, the CRC issue has been
fixed. So, get the latest BIOS from IBM, T21 BIOS: ftp://ftp.software.ibm.com/pc/pccbbs/mobiles/spsdkz34.exe
and flash the BIOS. Reboot the system and verify the updated BIOS. Now
power down the system, desolder the known good EEPROM and resolder the
CRC1 EEPROM. Boot the machine and hit ESC when the splash screen comes
up and watch the post screen. The new BIOS should have recalculated the
EEPROM checksum and written the changes to it. You'll know if it worked
because the CRC1 error will be gone.
Google bad caps on motherboard. I just revived a VLi8 which had this problem. For the KZM-6120 motherboard that I have there a six 1500 uF, 6.3 volt capacitors lined up in front of the pentium III heatsink. Look for gunk oozing out the base of the capacitors. This is a well-known problem apparently. See here:
Symptoms sound similar. What mine did was that the computer wouldn't reboot after windows 2000 reinstall, lock up during boot, and the yellow lock light would be on sometimes. I could only run from a floppy. Updated bios, changed HD, nothing worked.
Replaced the six caps, and I have reinstalled system (2000 pro) and everything is working fine.
